People have a right to protest
I just read a Wikipedia article:
Occupy Wall Street. (2011, October 31). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 15:20, October 31, 2011, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Occupy_Wall_Street&oldid=45830...
I agree with this article because many people have difficulties paying back their student loans, finding work, and finding ways to finish college when their money has already ran out. When things like this happen to people that's when the stress and burdens begin to take hold of peoples lives because not only do they have to go throw the everyday struggles but they also have the stress of having to pay their depths and other loans that they occurred from the government. One sentence from this article that stands out for me is “People have the right to protest, and if they want to protest, we’ll be happy to make sure they have locations to do it.” I think this is fair because the people who have to deal with the laws should have the right to speak up and give their opinion and if they want to protest they should have the right to do so because they are the ones that have to deal with the different types of laws. I'm pretty sure this is accurate, because this was in a prior protest on September 17, in New York City and this was taken from Mayor Bloomberg’s press conference.
Another sentence that I agree with is:
“The initial phase of the revolution, what we are seeing right now, is leaderless, and the protesters are not hopping into bed with any party, even the Democratic party... As the winter approaches, I think there will be different phases and ideas, possibly fragmentation into different agendas. I think crystal-clear demands will emanate... The messy, leaderless, demand less movement has launched a national conversation of the likes that we haven't had in 20 years. That's as good as it gets! Not every one needs to have a leader with generation, with egalitarian ways of looking at things, and an inclusive process of getting everyone involved. That's the magic of it.”
This stood out for me because I also believe that this protest will in fact grow to be one of the most controversial protests we’ve had in the last 20 years. It stood out for me because i do agree with the fact that the quote says that this protest will grow by the winter because of all the controversy and all the Internet adds being put out in public to catch people’s attention.
I double-checked this fact through
Occupy Wall Street (2011,November 3) http://occupywallst.org/
Is leaderless resistance movement with people of many colors, genders and political persuasions. The one thing we all have in common is that We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%. We are using the revolutionary Arab Spring tactic to achieve our ends and encourage the use of nonviolence to maximize the safety of all participants.
What i learned from this article was that US being the 99% we have the most authority and we shall be able to speak our mind and say what we want because WE are the ones that have to deal with the rules and regulations NOT the 1%. Throughout the years WE as the people have let the 1% take over every aspect of our lives and we have allowed them to corrupt our government and lives.
